Solution: The CPG company leveraged technology to come up with two solutions:
1. After identifying that delays were occurring at customs, they automated the documentation process through a cloud-based supply chain solution. It could feed data directly into customs to get it signed off quickly and avoid delay.
2. The company invested in geo-location devices to track each truck. If a truck stops for 5 minutes or goes off route, the company is notified immediately.
Results: The company cut down on lost product, ensured fresh quality goods and reduced kidnappings. And its suppliers feel better about driving their trucks.
